Darren Baker takes a look at the Boeing F/A-18E Super Hornet from Meng Models in 1/48th scale.

I have this kit and can attest to everything Darren said. This box is full of sprues.
I am very happy with my purchase. Go Meng.

I’ve actually built this one and it goes together like Tamiya. An excellent kit. The only aftermarket I used was the Wolfpack seat and it fit just fine. I would agree that the exhaust nozzles are a bit underwhelming, but the only real nit I have to pick is that the holes are pre-opened in the wings for the pylons. For most everyone, this will be fine, but I built a Blue Angels aircraft using Milspec decals and I had to fill all of them.

I haven’t built the Hasegawa kit, but I think it would be hard to beat the Meng kit. I have the F ready to go, and it will be a CAG bird, so no problem with the pylon holes!
